Aviverm Dosage Advice

Postby curlymoo » Sat Mar 18, 2017 10:14 pm

Hi all, I just purchased an 8ml (re bottled) bottle of aviverm from the bird barn on Lincoln road in Auckland. The instructions on the bottle are 4ml per litre of water and the shop attendants told me to follow the instructions and leave the treated water with them for 24 hours. I followed these instructions this afternoon and have dosed both the 3x adults and 5x 8 week old chicks (4ml each in 1litre of water). I thought I would just double check online the instructions and what I've read is quite different and I'm now worried that I am overdosing them. Any advice please? Thanks in advance

You normally use a dose rate of 1ml per 9kg live weight. So 1ml per litre would have been enough for your amount of birds.
There's a eggs withholding time of 6 days after treatment . But don't worry ! The extra 3 ml you gave them won't do any harm
to your birds. Did you deworm because you saw worms in their droppings ?

Thanks Wolga, I ended up taking the treated water out when the chicks were about 1/4 way through and the adults were about 3/4 of the way through, so the adults have probably had a little much, but they are still kicking so hopefully no damage done! :| I saw what I think was a roundworm come out of one of the adults, which is why I decided to de-worm.
